[K12OSN] rdesktop coming up first

I came across this unresolved issue in the archives (see below) and I
solved it by editing /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/screens.d/rdesktop and
uncommenting the following lines near the bottom of the script:

echo -n "        Press <enter> to Login  "

I hope this helps someone.

I think I actually solved it at last years NCLS, but I don't remember
for sure.  If it
pops into my head I'll post back out to a new thread.  If I remember
right it actually
is on screen 02 when it fires up it just so happens that it is the first
available so it is displayed.  I think there was a switch or something
to either delay
the login of rdesktop so that the LTSP login won the race, or a switch
to set screen 01
as the default to be shown.
